The week in .NET – Rezoom.SQL, Protobuf in Orlando, and links!
Tool of the week: Rezoom.SQL
Rezoom.SQL is an F# ORM for SQL databases.
It integrates with the F# compiler via a generative type provider to statically typecheck its own dialect of SQL. It knows how to translate this SQL dialect to various backends. Currently it supports SQLite, SQL Server, and PostgreSQL.
The type provider makes it fast and easy to write SQL statements, run them, and consume their results from your F# code with full type safety. You don’t need to install any editor extensions or custom tooling, just add a NuGet package and you’re off and running writing code like this:.
type ListUsers = SQL<""" select * from Users """> let showUsers() = use context = new ConnectionContext() let users = ListUsers.Command().Execute(context) printfn "There are %d users." users.Count for user in users do printfn "User ID %d's email is %s..." user.Id user.Email match user.Name with | None -> printfn " and they don't have a name." | Some name -> printfn " and their name is %s." name
User group meeting of the week: Protobuf in Orlando
Protocol Buffers is a method of serializing structured data. It is useful in developing programs to communicate with each other over a wire or for storing data. Join the Orlando .NET User Group on Thursday, August 10 at 6:00PM to learn how to apply Protobuf in .NET.

Contribute to the week in .NET
As always, this weekly post couldn’t exist without community contributions, and I’d like to thank all those who sent links and tips. The F# section is provided by Phillip Carter, the gaming section by Stacey Haffner, the Xamarin section by Dan Rigby, and the Azure and UWP section by Michael Crump.
You can participate too. Did you write a great blog post, or just read one? Do you want everyone to know about an amazing new contribution or a useful library? Did you make or play a great game built on .NET?We’d love to hear from you, and feature your contributions on future posts. Please add your posts, it takes only a second.
We pick the articles based on the following criteria: the posts must be about .NET, they must have been published this week, and they must be original contents. Publication in Week in .NET is not an endorsement from Microsoft or the authors of this post.
This week’s post (and future posts) also contains news I first read on The ASP.NET Community Standup, on Weekly Xamarin, on F# weekly, and on The Morning Brew.
